A day ahead
Wednesday. 10.16.13 9:35 pm
Twice I had to remind myself that it was still Wednesday and not Thursday, as my mind kept wanting to convince me. Twice. I definitely need this extending weekend of mine to come. It'll be just the little bit of a break that I need to be able to get through the next 7 weeks.

I've been so tired lately that I'm thankful for the slow day we had at work. I actually dozed off a few times. It wasn't for any more than a few minutes at a time, but I definitely need to catch up on some much needed sleep. Sam's wasn't too bad and I was working with some pretty upbeat people so that helped keep me awake. Only one more day to get through.

I'll probably be up for a little while because I want my hair to dry some before I call it a night. However, since it takes forever for it to dry anyway, I don't think staying up an extra hour would make too much of a difference so we'll see how tired I get in the next hour or so.

We have a state-wide earthquake drill at 10:17 tomorrow morning. It's completely voluntary, but people are encouraged to partake. There will be a scenario drill afterward at our campus between the managers so that should make for an interesting second half of the shift. Here's to hoping it goes by quickly and smoothly without me wanting to end up strangling someone.

Until then. . .

We're already halfway through October. I will be writing these entries from a Vegas hotel room 7 weeks from now. Excited? Just a bit. Can time hurry up please?

I think I may have to schedule an appointment with my doctor soon because I strained my wrist the other day and I'm beginning to think I might have onset carpal tunnel syndrome. I'll just have to make sure I remember when exactly I did it so that if I have to fill out on-the-job paperwork, I'll have a good date/time frame in which it happened. I'm gonna type out Saturday morning between 7 and 10am as a base in case I forget. I'm pretty sure it was when I had to count out the $260 in singles.

I really need to get over my crush. I need to move on. It's really not going to work so long as I'm working there and there's no point in getting all worked up about something that's never going to happen. I mean, who knows if it actually will in the future, but until I quit, or have the opportunity to quit {ie: after my vacation} I just really need to back off and stop fantasizing. It bugs me when he's there now and not in the giddy way that it did when I first was crushing on him.

Two more days to get through. Hopefully they go buy quickly and smoothly. We'll see what happens.

Until tomorrow. . .

Is it just me or has the type size on NuTang gotten bigger ...?

I'm glad that the day is over. Nothing terribly exciting happened that's worthy of writing about, but it was a long day. Every day seems that way these days, but working two jobs kind of doesn't help. Oh well. Just a little bit longer and I won't have to worry about it anymore. I can go back to only working one job, if I wanted. I'll probably keep the second one so that I can pay off my car/debt faster, but we'll see what happens when I get back from my trip.

Time for sleep. Hopefully tomorrow isn't a nightmare, like most Tuesdays are.

Until then. . .

So close, yet so far
Sunday. 10.13.13 6:57 pm
Counting the days down until my trip, I still have quite a few. Counting down the weeks, by paycheck, until my trip, I'm running really close. I think I have 4 paychecks left until my trip. I'm really hoping that I can have a good chunk of money saved up by the time I go. As much as I don't want to work a bunch of extra hours, I know it'll pay off in the end.

I had my one coffee {homemade pumpkin spice latte} for the year and it hit me pretty hard. I started to fall asleep standing up. Caffeine just affects me in the complete opposite way that it normally does for people. It always has. People never believe me, but when my coworkers saw me go from tired to barely staying awake, I think they finally understood why I never drink coffee. I'm totally in the wrong city for that, but oh well. There's other things that Seattle has to offer.

It's nice that the sun sets early again. It makes going to bed early {when I'm not working} a lot easier. This week is supposed to be sunny all week, which means that the temps will be back in the upper 60s so I'll probably leave my windows open again. This way when the sun comes out and beats down on my windows, it won't make it too warm since there will be a cool breeze still.

Alright, I'm already starting to fall asleep, but I want to stay up at least another hour. If I go to bed too early, I'll be awake far too early and when I work both jobs I need to get as sufficient sleep as possible.

Until tomorrow. . .

Lost day
Saturday. 10.12.13 6:26 pm
Despite the fact that I got off work at 3:15, I didn't get finished with what I needed to get done until about 10 minutes ago. Pretty much the entire day was lost, but I guess it'll pay off in the end. I'm getting really sick of working so much. Only another month and a half to go ...

I invited my manager to the party next weekend. I doubt he'll go because his response was 'that's a bad idea,' but he didn't straight up say no so at least now the bug is in his ear. I told him to think about it. I have an idea on how I'll approach the next {and final} time I ask him, but that all depends on if I get the opportunity. We'll see what happens.

I'm thinking I strained my wrist/thumb at work today counting out $250 worth of singles. Only two professions can I think of where you can make large payments as such: stripper or vending machine owner. Since the dude was old and wrinkly, I'm going with vending machine owner. Also, because I was told he was the guy who owns the machines in the store so that kind of solved that mystery. Still, it took a good bit for me to confirm that there was, in fact, 250 dollar bills and my hand got sore after about 150 of them. Hopefully I'll be able to heal up between tonight and tomorrow since I'll have to be back at work Monday afternoon.

Bed will be an early affair for me tonight since I slept kind of shitty last night. I can't believe I've become such a lightweight when it comes to drinking. I only had a vodka cocktail, a tiny fluke 'toasting amount' of champagne and 1 1/2 Red Hooks pumpkin ales. It's completely beside the point that the food I ate there was pretty much the only thing I'd had to eat the whole day, but still. That little amount of alcohol used to not even affect me. Now it doesn't get me completely drunk, but I certainly felt it. Next weekend's party should be interesting.

Until tomorrow. . .

Wedding crasher
Friday. 10.11.13 10:32 pm
The wedding was really sweet, but since I didn't know anyone other than the friend I went with, it was pretty much just a place I went for free food. I dressed up, congratulated the bride and groom, at some food, enjoyed some drinks and music and we called it a night. I got home a lot earlier than I expected to, but that's fine because I have to work early in the morning.

I had my friend take a picture of me wearing the dress and heels to send to my family since they never see me dressed up as such and they're reactions are pretty funny. My mom really enjoys pretty much any picture I send to her and my sister proclaimed that there was actual proof. It would probably still be funny if I wasn't buzzed, but I'm definitely amused.

For once, I didn't have to drive tonight so I took advantage and actually had a few drinks. Not many, but enough to feel it; which, these days, doesn't take much. I'll probably sleep pretty well tonight. I'm still drinking water so I shouldn't be hung over in the morning.

My work kind of fucked up and I made sure they felt it. I was all set to work the overtime, as I had said in pretty much every entry for the past week. It didn't surprise me in the least when they called me this morning, twice, begging me to work because the person they "originally had scheduled" was a no-call, no-show. I told them no, that I had plans and that I confirmed with them yesterday and told them yesterday that I was going to make plans and not to call me to come in. Idiots. They won't learn from this, but maybe next time they won't be so quick to take overtime away from someone who's responsible.

I have laundry to do tomorrow after I get home from work, but other than that, I'm pretty much going to be relaxing and will probably go to bed early. Hopefully tomorrow's shift isn't too bad. I'm there for 8 hours so we'll see.

Until then. . .
